Filtering Internal Traffic when Employees are working from home

Hi,

 

I need to filter out internal traffic from when employees work from home. Is there a simple way of doing this without making changes to the website? We dont have an intranet. I have already created a filter for when employees access the website from work (using a private IP range filter). 

Thanks in advance. (Also a newbie to GA, no nothing too technical please!)

Hi Vindhi,

 

You can create a separate IP filter for every employee or you can guide them to use Ghostery and exclude your own website. You can learn more about that if you take a look at this topic: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-Analytics-Filters/How-to-exclude-pages-containing-p...

 

Here you can find a great article that helps you as well: https://www.ohow.co/excluding-internal-traffic-google-analytics/ - written by @Carlos Escalera

 

Cheers,

Taavi
